"I was tiny" dad said. "And she boosted me up so I could get a drink. And imagine, all these years later and we're married and have two kids." "What does this have to do with basketball?" "You have to dream big to get big"
"Something magical happened to me when I went to Reardan. Overnight I became magical. I suppose it had something to do with confidence. I mean, I'd always been the lowest Indian on the reservation totem pole – I wasn't expected to be good so I wasn't. But in Reardan, my coach and the other players wanted me to be good. They needed me to be good. They expected me to be good. And so I became good."
"I'm not nomadic," Rowdy said. "Hardly anybody on this rez is nomadic. Except for you. You're the nomadic one." "Whatever." "No, I'm serious. I always knew you were going to leave. I always knew you were going to leave us behind and travel the world. I had this dream about you a few months ago. You were standing on the Great Wall of China. You looked happy. And I was happy for you."
Although Arnold's family is having a bunch of problems, his dad still encourages him to dream big. His optimism is important to help accomplish the dreams he wants.
On the reservation Arnold was a nobody, but at Reardon he became a hero. This happened through positive thinking, high expectations, and hope. The simple fact that everyone believed in Arnold helped encourage him to try all that much harder.
Rowdy finally forgives Arnold, and when he does he's actually happy for him. This allows Arnold to follow his own path with his best friend there to encourage him even more if he needs it.
